We can put boot.iso ( aka netinstall and or bootable-rescue) and live images on a usb pen drive, let suppose that pen is mounted on /dev/sdb.

First must be on vfat or else format usb with:

You may want to run lsblk to find out what /devname was assigned to your flash drive.
Warning this clean all the data without asking, be sure the letter after /dev/sd is correct.

mkfs.vfat /dev/sdx1

after and always as root do :

dnf install livecd-tools
/usr/bin/livecd-iso-to-disk boot.iso /dev/sdb1

After you may test if pen boots correctly:

qemu-system-i386 -hda /dev/sdb -boot c

in this operation you may need give permissions to normal user with :

chmod o+rw /dev/sdb* (as root)

You can also do it by running in a terminal (after downloading iso image from, and still supposing your pen drive is mounted on /dev/sdb):

sudo dd if=/home/<user>/Path-to-downloaded-iso/nameoffedoraimage.iso of=/dev/sdb

This will delete everything on your pen drive and create a bootable usb of fedora.

This is very dangerous!/dev/sdb may or may not be your flash/pen drive. Never run sudo dd ... without being sure what you are doing! You can easily destroy data of an entire hard disk!

So, before you run dd, use lsblk to find out what your pen drive is labeled.
